Digital Signage and Display Systems
Digital signage is a form of electronic display that shows television programming, menus, information, advertising and other messages. Digital signs (such as LCD, LED, plasma displays, or projected images) can be found in public and private environments, such as schools & colleges, retail stores, hotels, restaurants and corporate buildings.
Digital signage displays are managed and controlled by computers or servers by way of proprietary software programs, avoiding any large capital outlays for the controller equipment.
Advertising using digital signage is a form of out-of-home advertising in which video content, advertisements and messages are displayed on digital signs with a common goal of delivering targeted messages to specific locations at specific times.
The market sees digital signage as more beneficial compared to static signage. This is because content can be digitally updated, saving the cost of printing. Digital signage also has the ability to be interactive with imbedded touch screens, movement detection and image capture devices.
“Content”, in the context of digital signage, is the name used to describe anything designed and displayed on screens. Content can be anything, including text, images, animations, video, audio, and interactivity. It has frequently been argued that digital signage relies on good content if it is to work effectively.
While the technology is well-established, it is often the content that fails, because marketers have not adapted their thinking to produce appropriate and engaging content.
Content design (much like the design for static signage) is typically done through a specialist agency or in-house. While there are a great number of different software solutions available, the most popular are proprietary to digital signage. The use of other systems to run a digital signage network often does not provide the necessary flexibility and management, as the proprietary software can create conflicts with open-source software.
In many digital signage applications, content must be regularly updated to ensure that the correct messages are being displayed. This can either be done manually as and when needed, or through a scheduling system, using a data feed from a content provider.
